Presentation summary:

Today, we face an existential threat to the very future of humanity as a result of human-induced climate change.

This threat forces us to confront the necessity for deliberate and committed action to create new forms of sustainable human community. Dr. Walker calls for a broad conception of environmental ethics as a critical and necessary response to our contemporary climate crisis.
